5 incredible road trips from Sydney | Phil GIlbert Hyundai

Forget NT or QLD; there are heaps of amazing road trips you can take in your own backyard. Load up your Hyundai with some snacks and some good mates, and take in the beauty that New South Wales has to offer. Before you go, make sure your car is prepared for the summer, and that you’re complying with any current government regulations.

Grand Pacific Drive

Located less than an hour south from Sydney CBD, the Grand Pacific Drive is a stunning 140 km coastal drive that’s a match for even Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. This journey is packed with all the best bits about Sydney; taking you from rainforests to coastal cities and the iconic Sea Cliff Bridge. 

There’s something for families and groups of friends on this road trip, and we recommend planning your itinerary before you go to avoid missing out! Whether you want to sky dive and surf in Wollongong, or want to take in picturesque coastlines and sample delicious food and wine, this is a NSW road trip you won’t forget.

Blue Mountains

The magnificent Blue Mountains are not to be missed by any Sydney-sider. Drive to this famous World Heritage Area and then explore its beauty on foot. The natural beauty of the area is nothing short of enchanting - with one million hectares of eucalyptus trees, tall forests, sandstone cliffs, canyons and waterfalls. 

You’ll find the Blue Mountains to be about a two-hour drive west from Sydney.

Jervis Bay

Located in Shoalhaven about 3 hours south of Sydney, Jervis Bay is unmissable for anyone that appreciates a great beach. In fact, it’s one of Australia's most popular seaside destinations (and we know how high competition is over here), thanks to its powder-fine white sand and clear turquoise waters.

Chill out on the beach or take advantage of scuba diving and paddle-boarding opportunities, and settle into the natural summer charm that Jervis Bay oozes.

Hunter Valley

Hunter Valley is Australia’s oldest wine region, and it’s only around a two-hour drive north of Sydney. Visitors can drink and dine in some of the region’s best wineries and restaurants, or take a famous hot air balloon ride at sunrise. Hunter Valley makes the perfect 3-day road trip for those romantic long weekends.

Sydney’s Northern Beaches

There’s no shortage of beaches to choose from in the north of Sydney, and you could make a day (or a weekend) of lazing about beautiful shores and sampling local dishes. Perfect for those that don’t want to spend too much time driving, work your way through Manly Beach, Shelly Beach, Whale Beach, Avalon Beach, Freshwater Beach and more.
